Ideas Are Powerful!

I love ideas and being a creative, my mind and life is filled with them. My biggest problem is grabbing hold of them and finding the time to follow through with thinking, planning and implementation. I try to keep a note book, but most of the time I am too scattered to discipline myself to take the time to write, print, post, draw and record, which I know is a down right shame and I have got to do better.

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters…” -Colossians 3:23

The real power of an idea comes when we capture it, nurture it, bring it to life and share it’s benefits and blessings with others. The problem with ideas is that they are quickly forgotten. So we need to develop a system that allows us to keep them from fluttering away just as quickly as they came into our thoughts.

The First Step To Getting The Most Out Of Our Ideas Is To Capture It! This is best done by finding a way to record the idea and our thoughts about it. We can do this by writing it down, recording via video or audio our idea and thought or even sharing it with someone else, who is better at remembering and holding onto things. The important thing is to develop a capturing system and then practice disciplining yourself to use it regularly. Another great benefit of a journal/notebook to record your ideas in, is that once you write it down, your mind is free to release is and open space for even more creative ideas…

The Second Step To Getting The Most Out Of Our Ideas Is To Nurture It! This means we need to take care of it, feed it, water it and give it whatever it needs to grow and develop. This way the idea can actually grow into something that makes a difference. We need to schedule time to think about our ideas, work on our ideas and grow our ideas. If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail and many great ideas get lost, because while someone had the idea, no one was willing to do anything with it…

The Third Step To Getting The Most Out Of Our Ideas Is To Bring It To Life. This means we not only make a plan, but we actually begin executing the steps to help make the plan a reality. The light bulb was an idea, but someone had to fail many times, before it became a reality, but once it became a reality, it changed everyone’s lives and still does to this very day…

The Fourth Step To Getting The Most Out Of Our Ideas Is To Share The Benefits And Blessings With Others. Most of the ideas we have are going to make life or some task in life easier for us and if it does it for us, then it more than likely will do that for others. The real blessing of having an idea is not having it. The real blessing of an idea is not even helping the idea to become a reality. The real blessing of an idea is using it to make life better for others.

Ideas are powerful and God gives us many everyday. Take some time to grab on and help some of them become reality, you will be glad you did…
